Modifying Independent Work Habits: An Effective-Affective Teacher-Parent Communication Program.
Imber, Steve C.; And Others
The study was designed to examine the effect of teacher administered praise notes on the academic performance of three second grade special needs students with reading difficulty or learning disabilities. Also studied were effects of notes and their use in conjunction with parental social reinforcement. A multiple baseline procedure was used to investigate the relative effects of teacher and parent-teacher praise on the completion of independent reading seatwork. Results demonstrated significant increases in student performance as a function of written teacher praise. Additional gains were realized from systematic parental support. (Author/SBH)
